gtk.Activatable Properties

"related-action"Read/Write The action that this activatable will activate and receive updates from for various states and possibly appearance. Note: gtk.Activatable implementors need to handle the "related-action" property and call gtk.Activatable.do_set_related_action() when it changes. This property is available in GTK+ 2.16 and above.
"use-action-appearance"Read/Write Whether this activatable should reset its layout and appearance when setting the related action or when the action changes appearance. See the gtk.Action documentation directly to find which properties should be ignored by the gtk.Activatable when this property is False. Note: gtk.Activatable implementors need to handle the "related-action" property and call gtk.Activatable.do_set_related_action() when it changes. Default value: True. This property is available in GTK+ 2.16 and above.

Known Implementation

gtk.Activatable is implementated by gtk.TearoffMenuItem, gtk.OptionMenu, gtk.LinkButton, gtk.RadioButton, gtk.RadioToolButton, gtk.ToggleButton, gtk.SeparatorMenuItem, gtk.ImageMenuItem, gtk.CheckButton, gtk.RadioMenuItem, gtk.Button, gtk.MenuToolButton, gtk.MenuItem, gtk.RecentChooserMenu, gtk.ToolItem, gtk.SeparatorToolItem, gtk.CheckMenuItem, gtk.ToolButton, gtkFontButton., gtk.ScaleButton, gtk.ToggleToolButton, gtk.VolumeButton, gtk.ColorButton.

Description

Activatable widgets can be connected to a gtk.Action and reflects the state of its action. A GtkActivatable can also provide feedback through its action, as they are responsible for activating their related actions.

When extending a class that is already gtk.Activatable it is only necessary to implement the gtk.Activatable.do_sync_action_properties and gtk.Activatable.do_update() class methods and chain up to the parent implementation, however when introducing a new gtk.Activatable class the "related-action" and "use-action-appearance" properties need to be handled by the implementor. Handling these properties is mostly a matter of installing the action pointer and boolean flag on your instance, and calling gtk.Activatable.do_set_related_action() and gtk.Activatable.sync_action_properties() at the appropriate times.

Methods

gtk.Activatable.do_set_related_action

    def do_set_related_action(action)

action :

the gtk.Action to set.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

The do_set_related_action() method is an utility function for gtk.Activatable implementors.

When implementing gtk.Activatable you must call this when handling changes of the "related-action", and you must also use this to break references in GObject->dispose().

This function adds a reference to the currently set related action for you, it also makes sure the GtkActivatable->update() method is called when the related gtk.Action properties change and registers to the action's proxy list.

Note

Be careful to call this before setting the local copy of the gtk.Action property, since this function uses gtk.Activatable.get_related_action() to retrieve the previous action

gtk.Activatable.get_related_action

    def get_related_action()

Returns :

the related gtk.Action if one is set.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

The get_related_action() method gets the related gtk.Action for activatable.

gtk.Activatable.get_use_action_appearence

    def get_use_action_appearence()

Returns :

whether activatable uses its actions appearance.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

The get_use_action_appearence() method gets whether this activatable should reset its layout and appearance when setting the related action or when the action changes appearance.

gtk.Activatable.set_related_action

    def set_related_action(action)

action :

the gtk.Action to set.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

Note

gtk.Activatable implementors need to handle the "related-action" property and call gtk.Activatable.do_set_related_action() when it changes.

The set_related_action() method sets the related action on the activatable object.

gtk.Activatable.set_use_action_appearence

    def set_use_action_appearence(use_appearence)

use_appearence :

whether to use the actions appearance.

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

Note

gtk.Activatable implementors need to handle the "related-action" property and call gtk.Activatable.do_set_related_action() when it changes.

The set_use_action_appearence() method sets whether this activatable should reset its layout and appearance when setting the related action or when the action changes appearance

gtk.Activatable.sync_action_properties

    def sync_action_properties(action)

action :

the related gtk.Action or None

Note

This method is available in PyGTK 2.16 and above.

The set_use_action_appearence() method is called to update the activatable completely, this is called internally when the "related-action" property is set or unset and by the implementing class when "use-action-appearance" changes.
